In the Canadian Arctic, the Inuit people have been hunting seals for over a hundred years and the activity is imperative to develop and maintain their community’s economic well-being. A European Union ban on white seal pup products in 1983 has had a terrible financial impact on seal-hunting. But the Inuit people insist that they never hunted white seal pup products. The Canadian indigenous folks lobby their case in the EU in the face of highly funded animal welfare organisations’ excessive propaganda. Can a tiny population change the minds of billions of people?
